Best Answer

In gymnastics, there are four events, Bars, Beam, Vault, and Floor. As you improve you can travel and compete and even have a chance to go to worlds.

In cheer you make towers and perform and do routines like dancing to music in an odd way. You also do some type of floor. This involves less strength but alot of quick thinking.

There both alike because there both sports (of course) and they both learn to do tricks but you don't make towers in gymnastics YOU DO FLIPS IN CHEER ALL THE TIME. Guys and girls can do both of them.

Hope this helped!
